House Republicans outline new tax plan TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Republicans in the Kansas House outlined a new, compromise plan Wednesday for cutting income taxes in hopes of breaking a stalemate that’s prevented legislators from wrapping up their business for the year. The new plan would cancel part of a decrease in the state’s sales tax scheduled by law for July. The move would be aimed at stabilizing Kansas’ budget, while cutting personal income taxes further to follow up on massive reductions made last year in hopes of stimulating the economy. The sales tax is 6.3 percent, and both Republican Gov. Sam Brownback and the GOP-dominated Senate wanted to keep that rate in

Turning a new page Carswell’s index changes forms By STEVEN SCHWARTZ steven@iolaregister.com

Roger Carswell created the Kansas Periodical Index in 1984, giving researchers and readers an easier way to find information. This year his index is changing from book form to online-only. “This will probably outlive me,” Carswell said. “It’s still as useful today as it ever was.” The index has been published in book form since 1984. Carswell first began the index as “something to do” during the summers when he was working for the school district in Wellington. He then moved to working in a public library. “I haven’t had a free summer since,” Carswell said. Originally the index, which was the first of its kind in Kansas, was categorized by subject alone. Today, the index enables users to search by keyword, author, date and subject through all of Kansas’ seven periodi-

cals, including the popular Kansas! magazine and the Kansas Government Journal. One of the reasons for moving to an online-only format is the reduction in periodicals. When Carswell began the project almost 30 years ago, he was referencing 16 journals. The index was published by Reference Press out of Canada. Roger Carswell “ T h e r e wasn’t good access to material,” Carswell said of the periodicals in Kansas back in the 1980s. One may think that he would miss the romantic notion of having his own physical print publication. That couldn’t be further from the truth. He reminisced about lugging papers, books and magazines to and from the post office and his office. “It’s a relief,” he said. “I’m going to be glad to be done See INDEX | Page A6

HUMBOLDT — Humboldt school athletes wore out the old ditty “Rain, Rain Go Away” this spring in anticipation of a new sports complex delayed by inclement weather. But in short order, they will have a football field and softball and baseball infields featuring artificial turf and a rubberized all-weather track, all on part of a 59-acre tract at the east edge of town. “It’s beautiful, something we’re really proud of,” said K.B. Criss, superintendent of USD 258 schools. Criss said the artificial turf on all three fields sits atop layers of crushed rock that will carry rainwater to drains and make it possible to play im-

mediately after a heavy rain. Outfields will be covered with thick grass; the softball field was sodded during spring

material are woven into the artificial turf. The baseball field is a couple of weeks behind, but with the recent spate of warm, dry weather it will take final shape quickly. The two ball fields will be available this summer, for such things as weekend tournaments and in the years ahead may even permit Humboldt to attract state tournaments. While esthetics and usability are strong pluses, Brad Piley, coach of Humboldt High’s state-qualifying softball team, noted another advantage. “It will give kids in the area, in addition to ours, an opportunity to play on artificial turf, something you don’t find often in a rural area,” he observed.

Man threatens from behind prison bars By ROXANA HEGEMAN Associated Press

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The man convicted of killing one of the nation’s few late-term abortion providers is now accused of trying to intimidate the woman who reopened his shuttered clinic, prison officials said. The Kansas Department of Corrections said Tuesday it filed an administrative charge against inmate Scott Roeder under a prison regulation which prohibits threatening or intimidating anyone. The 55-year-old abortion opponent is serving a life sentence at the state prison in Lansing for gunning down George Tiller in May 2009 at the physician’s Wichita church. The administrative charge stems from a recorded jailhouse phone call that Dave Leach, an abortion opponent from Des Moines, Iowa, posted on YouTube last month that as of Wednesday had gotten 629 views. In it, Leach is heard saying that if someone shot the new abortion provider like Roeder shot Tiller it would be “a blessing to the babies.” He called reopening the clinic where Tiller practiced “a gauntlet thrown down, by someone who wants a fight.” Roeder laughed and agreed with Leach, saying on the recording that it was “deathdefying” for someone to walk back into that clinic. “To walk in there

and reopen a clinic, a murder mill where a man was stopped, it’s almost like putting a target on your back — saying, “Well, let’s see if you can shoot me,” Roeder said. Julie Burkhart, executive director of the abortion rights group Trust Women, opened in April Wichita’s first abortion clinic since Tiller’s slaying nearly four years earlier. The South Wind Women’s Center provides abortions and other medical services in the old building that once housed Tiller’s clinic. Burkhart did not immediately respond to a voice message left Wednesday on her cell phone. DOC spokesman Jeremy Barclay said an administrative hearing will be scheduled to determine whether Roeder is guilty of the Class I offense. Such offenses are considered among the prison’s most serious violations and can result in disciplinary segregation, loss of privileges and extra uncompensated work, according to the agency’s website.

Judge OKs Salina cleanup

SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Although a federal judge has approved a consent decree involving the cleanup at the former Schilling Air Force Base in Salina, cleanup at the site is still years away. The Salina Journal reported Wednesday that the judge approved the joint settlement agreement between Salina authorities and the federal government. The approval is another step in an 18year conflict over the cost of cleaning up contaminated groundwater and soil at a former Air Force base. The decree essentially starts the process of making a plan for the environmental cleanup of a plume of pollution that is moving toward the city’s water wells. The federal government will pay more than $8.4 million of the nearly $9.4 million cost to map the operation. The city of Salina will pay the remaining $936,300.

Brown v. Board to mark anniversary

TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Brown v. Board of Education National Historic site in Topeka will display a black doll used in a series of famous race studies to mark the anniversary of the U.S. Supreme Court ruling. The case that toppled segregated education was decided 59 years ago Friday. In the 1940s and 1950s, psychologists Kenneth and Mamie Clark presented children with a black doll and a white doll as

part of social science experiments. The married black couple then asked the children which doll was the nicest, smartest and prettiest. Most chose the white doll. The Clarks testified about the results in a South Carolina school desegregation case. That case was combined with other desegregation cases from Topeka, Virginia, Delaware and Washington, D.C. and were argued collectively before the Supreme Court.

Grant to help cattle resiliency

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — Kansas State University scientists are part of a multistate partnership receiving a $9.6 million, five-year grant to find ways for cattle producers to adapt to climate extremes in their grazing operations. Kansas State agronomy professor and team leader Chuck Rice says the project’s goal is to increase the resiliency of beef cattle operations on grazing lands and wheat pastures. He says reaching that goal could help cattle operations remain productive through a range of potential climate changes. The researchers will work with ranchers and farmers to evaluate management practices and suggest changes to improve resiliency. Sharing the grant are Oklahoma State University, the University of Oklahoma, U S DA - A g r i c u l t u r a l Research Service, the Noble Foundation and Tarleton State University in Texas.

H House Continued from A1 ter last year’s cuts, would decline to 3.8 percent for 2017, compared to the 3.5 percent proposed by Brownback and endorsed by senators. House Taxation Committee Chairman Richard Carlson presented the new plan during a meeting of three senators and three House members appointed by legislative leaders to reconcile the chambers’ differences. Carlson, a St. Marys Republican, is the House’s lead negotiator. “We think it’s a very fair offer,” Carlson said during the negotiators’ half-hour meeting. “We think we’ve come to the middle.” Legislators must resolve tax issues to finish a state budget of roughly $14.5 billion for the fiscal year beginning July 1 and a similarly sized spending plan for the following fiscal year. Lawmakers cannot adjourn without passing budget legislation. Republican senators planned to caucus Thursday morning to review the new tax proposal; they invited GOP House members. House Republicans had a caucus Wednesday afternoon and invited GOP senators. A handful attended, including Senate President Susan Wagle, Wichita, and other leaders. Senate Assessment and Taxation Committee Chairman Les Donovan, his chamber’s lead negotiator in the public tax talks, called the new proposal “a great distance move” for House Republicans.

tion among lawmakers who felt they were getting little information about possible compromises. Instead, Wagle and House Speaker Ray Merrick, a Stilwell Republican, had private talks with Brownback to broker a deal, but the two legislators acknowledged an impasse Tuesday. Brownback didn’t see their stalemate as serious, however, describing it as part of the typical give-and-take on major issues near the end of lawmakers’ annual sessions. “You’ve got to come to a final conclusion, and it’s tough,” Brownback told The Associated Press before a public appearance at a Topeka high school. “This is normal. This is what happens this time of year.” Later, Revenue Secretary Nick Jordan declined to offer an opinion on House Republicans’ new tax plan.

Mexico gears up for volcano By RICHARD FAUSSET and CECILIA SANCHEZ Los Angeles Times

MEXICO CITY — Mexico’s giant Popocatepetl volcano may generate lava flows, explosions of “growing intensity” and rain ash that could reach miles away, the National Center for Disaster Prevention said Monday. Mexican officials were preparing evacuation routes and shelters for thousands of people who live in the shadow of Popocatepetl, which is 40 miles southeast of Mexico City. Officials have created a 7.5 mile restricted zone around the cone of the volcano. Popo, as the volcano is known, has displayed a “notable increase in activity levels” in the last few days, including tremors and explosive eruptions, according to a statement from the federal government. The 17,887-foot volcano has been disgorging large towers of steam and ash since mid-April, but officials have become more concerned in recent days as activity intensified. Webcams have shown large chunks of molten rock spewing from the crater, and ash has rained down on the nearby city of Puebla. On Sunday, the National Center for Disaster Prevention elevated its warning level to “Yellow Phase 3,” the fifth stage of a seven-stage warning scale. At the next stage, “Red Phase 1,” a voluntary evacuation order will be issued for residents of nearby villages. Then, in a familiar ritual, bells will ring in the town squares, the people will gather with their identification papers in plastic bags, and police and soldiers will offer to haul them away to safety. Popocatepetl, which means “smoking mountain” in the Aztec language Nahuatl,

Tornadoes slam Texas GRANBURY, Texas (AP) — A rash of tornados slammed into several small communities in North Texas overnight, leaving at least six people dead, dozens more injured and hundreds homeless. The violent spring storm scattered bodies, flattened homes and threw trailers onto cars. In Granbury, the worst-hit city, a tornado tore through two neighborhoods around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Resident Elizabeth Tovar described the fist-sized hail that heralded the tornado’s arrival, prompting her and her family to hide in their bathroom. “We were all, like, hugging in the bathtub and that’s when it started happening. I heard glass shattering and I knew my house was going,” Tovar said, shaking her head. “We looked up and ... the whole ceiling was gone.” Hood County Sheriff Roger Deeds described the devastating aftermath and the hunt for bodies in Granbury, about 40 miles southwest of Fort Worth. Six people died in Granbury. “Some were found in houses. Some were found around houses,” Deeds said.

dominates much of the landscape in central Mexico, along with its nearby “twin” volcano, the dormant Iztaccihuatl. Popo was dormant for decades until 1994, when it began to stir once more. There have been moderate outbursts from Popo in recent years, forcing the government to evacuate as many as 75,000 people at a time. The government for the state of Puebla has

already sent hundreds of police to three of the most threatened villages, where 11,000 people could be affected. Shelters have been set up and stocked with food, water and clothes. “We’re ready for any emergency,” said Lidia Carrillo, a spokeswoman for the state. Volcanologists consider Popocatepetl one of the most potentially destructive volcanoes in the world, due to the mil-

lions of people who have settled in and around the Mexican capital in recent decades. Although recent activity has mostly caused headaches for residents — due to occasional evacuation orders — there is a lingering concern that the volcano is due for the kind of major eruption that occurred 1,100 years ago, sending mudflows down the mountain that wiped out a Native American town near the current city of Puebla. “In the back of my mind is the fact that these volcanoes are more or less continuously accumulating gas and liquid in a subterranean chamber,” University of Buffalo volcanologist Michael F. Sheridan wrote recently about Popo, a volcano he has studied for years. “The longer the material is sitting down there ... the bigger the eruption that could be expected.”

Finally it has warmed enough for many of spring wildflowers to show their faces. This yellow winter cress and rose verbena are so pretty along our country roads.

~ Journalism that makes a difference

Graduation: more than completing required classes Most of us have to dig deep to reach memories of high school graduation. But no matter how far back the journey, similarities exist. For most, high school ends the years of living under your parents’ roof. It marks the beginning of studying for a career or leaping into a job right off the bat. Graduation can also bring the end, or beginning, to a relationship. And for those who grow up in small towns like Iola, it likely means the start of an adventure to bigger towns, other states or even faraway countries. So right there are four requirements to a successful graduation: Be equipped to function in a bigger world; be able to manage relationships; be ready to snip the parental strings; and be focused on a way to earn a living. That’s so much more than mastering a Regents university curriculum, although college scholarships are essential these days to help ease the burden of higher education. Of course, with age comes the advantage of perspective. What was important at age 18 — really, such a tender age — rarely survives the next decade. Going steady in high school only proved to be a rocky road when tested by the bigger world. The money for a car loan should have been spent on tuition. Accounting pleased the parents as a

sensible major, but failed to trigger the needed interest to stay the course. Step by step, through failures and successes, the lucky ones carved their ways to satisfyingly productive and purposeful lives. Second chances are a wonderful thing — and don’t stop with youth, as proved by Monday’s graduation of non-traditional students through the General Education Development program at Allen Community College. TODAY’S HIGH schools

deserve applause for how they educate the whole student. In addition to a core curriculum of science, English and government classes, students also can receive instruction in life skills such as parenting, balancing a checkbook, and in relationships. Kudos are in order for the Iola High School student council for addressing bullying between students as something that should not be tolerated. As a community we can help draw back our talented youth by investing in them now. Support your schools, way past the time your own have left their mark. Give to the youths raising funds to attend competitions and summer camps. Those are gifts long remembered and perhaps one day will come right back at us. — Susan Lynn

Guns on campus The Hutchinson Community College Board of Trustees deserves respect for taking no delays in seeking a potential eventual exemption from a new state law allowing concealed handguns on state college campuses. In their zeal to be pro-gun, Kansas legislators passed a new law this year legalizing concealed carry in all state and municipal buildings unless the building has adequate security measures to prevent weapons from being carried inside. However, it also allows certain institutions to seek an exemption through the attorney general’s office. HCC first must conduct a study of the implications of the state law on the campus, determining whether it would be in the best interest of the college to permit students and other people to carry concealed handguns or to incur the cost of security measures at building entrances. The HCC trustees on Tuesday au-

thorized the study. Should it find that security measures are a safer solution than arming students and faculty — and how any study could conclude otherwise is unfathomable — then the state should pay for the security measures, not the local taxpayers or students. That would put a price on this reckless, politically motivated piece of legislation, which might cause legislators to reconsider the value of it. More people with more guns will not make college campuses safer — especially when the alternative is metal detectors and guards at building entrances. One can only imagine the carnage of a shoot-out in a crowded hallway of a classroom building. Or, in the alternative, the cost of security at every building entrance. The HCC board and administration are following the only responsible course they can in response to this new law. — The Hutchinson News

Obama feigning ignorance falls flat WASHINGTON — President Passerby needs urgently to become a participant in his presidency.

Dana Milbank Washington Post Writers Group Late Monday came the breathtaking news of a fullfrontal assault on the First Amendment by his administration: word that the Justice Department had gone on a fishing expedition through months of phone records of Associated Press reporters. And yet President Obama reacted much as he did to the equally astonishing revelation on Friday that the IRS had targeted conservative groups based on their ideology. He responded as though he were just some bloke on a bar stool, getting his information from the evening news. In the phone-snooping case, Obama didn’t even stir from his stool. Instead, he had his press secretary, former Time magazine journalist Jay Carney, go before an incensed press corps Tuesday afternoon and explain why the president will not be involving himself in his Justice Department’s trampling of press freedoms. “Other than press reports, we have no knowledge of any attempt by the Justice Department to seek phone records of the Associated Press,” Carney announced. AND NOW THAT Obama has learned about this extraordinary abuse of power, he’s not doing a thing about it. “We are not involved at the White House in any decisions made in connection with ongoing criminal investigations,” Carney argued. Reuters correspondent Jeff Mason asked how Obama felt about “being compared to Richard Nixon on this.” The press secretary laughed. “People who make those kinds of comparisons need to check their history,” he said.

Carney had a point there. Nixon was a control freak. Obama seems to be the opposite: He wants no control over the actions of his administration. As the president distances himself from the actions of “independent” figures within his administration, he’s creating a power vacuum in which lower officials behave as though anything goes. Certainly, a president can’t know what everybody in his administration is up to, but he can take responsibility, he can fire people and he can call a stop to foolish actions such as wholesale snooping into reporters’ phone calls. At the start of Tuesday’s briefing, the AP’s Jim Kuhnhenn pointed out that in all the controversies of the moment — the Benghazi “talking points,” the IRS targeting and the journalists’ phone records — “you have placed the burden of responsibility someplace else. ... But it is the president’s administration.” President Passerby, however, was not joining the fray. Carney repeated Obama’s assertion that the IRS’ actions would be outrageous only “if ” they are true. Never mind that

these failures accountable.” The response to the deepdive into AP phone records also got the President Passerby response: “He cannot comment specifically on an ongoing criminal investigation or actions that investigators at the Department of Justice may or may not have taken.” It didn’t matter to Carney that the Justice Department had already admitted the actions in a letter to the AP. “But we know it happened, just as the IRS admitted what it had done,” Fox News’ Wendell Goler protested. “Again, it would be inappropriate to comment,” said Carney, one of the 42 times he used the words “appropriate” or “inappropriate” in his hourlong briefing. One of the few things Carney thought it appropriate to say was that Obama thinks the press should be “unfettered.” NPR’s Ari Shapiro asked Carney to square Obama’s belief in an unfettered press with the fact that he has prosecuted twice as many leakers as all previous administrations combined. Carney said Obama’s love of press freedom “is backed

Certainly, a president can’t know what everybody in his administration is up to, but he can take responsibility, he can fire people and he can call a stop to foolish actions such as wholesale snooping into reporters’ phone calls. the IRS has already admitted the violations and apologized. The press secretary said repeatedly that “we have to wait” for a formal report by the agency’s inspector general before the most powerful man in the world could take action. By contrast, Carney didn’t think it necessary to wait to assert that nobody in the White House knew about the IRS activities until “a few weeks ago.” (They apparently didn’t tell the boss about the matter until Friday.) Tuesday night, Obama issued a statement saying he had seen the I.G. report and directed Treasury Secretary Jack Lew “to hold those responsible for

up by his support for a media shield law.” This would be the shield law that died in Congress in 2010 because of Obama’s objections. Alexis Simendinger, from RealClearPolitics, challenged Carney to harmonize the refusal to meddle in an “ongoing investigation” with Obama’s comments on the Trayvon Martin case last year, when a Justice Department investigation was ongoing. “Come on,” Carney replied with scorn, repeating the excuse that “we have no knowledge” of the phone snooping “beyond the press reports that we’ve read.” And that’s just the problem.

million by last year — to build the fields and support facilities, including a 9,000-square-foot building for lockers, concession and storage. The trigger was Joe and Jane Works deeding 59 acres to the district, just outside of Humboldt’s city limit to the east. The sport complex occupies the south part of the tract, the north part will be held in abeyance for when new schools are deemed necessary. “That might be 15, 20 or 30 years from now,” Criss said, but whenever the time is right a site won’t be a concern. In addition to providing land, the Workses, who own B&W Trailer Hitches and often take steps to benefit the community, provided some resources for construction, such as equipment. Monarch Cement Company also lent a hand, as did the city with infrastructure. “Monarch owns Capital Concrete, in Topeka, and that’s where the splitface blocks and some other materials came from,” Criss said. “That’s really added to the esthetics of the complex, made it look

often in a rural area,” he observed. Criss also is eager for Humboldt’s track and field athletes to be able to show their talents to local folks. “We’ve never had anything other than a cinder (practice) track,” at the south edge of town that hasn’t been used for years, he said. The all-weather track will be in easy view of a stadium with seating for 1,500 spectators. “There will be 1,000 seats on the home side, with 400 chair-back seats, and 500 on the visitors’ side,” Criss noted, with their use more to the point for football games. The first home varsity game on the new field, with an imposing orange Cub print at the 50-yard line, will be the third game of the season against Neodesha. THE COMPLEX is part of a longterm plan to locate all three schools — elementary, middle and high — on the east side of town. Through the years the district has squirreled away money — about $2

a lot better. Like what you’d expect to see in a larger city. “We’ve tried to keep construction under $2 million, except for lights, and we’ve caught some breaks that’s made that possible,” Criss said. “Of course, we’ve had surprises, too, but all in all we’ve met our goals.” Double E Construction, LaHarpe, owned by Don Emerson, installed artificial turf, a skill the company’s crew honed in similar projects for Lawrence High School and several out-of-state colleges and high schools. The complex will be a boon to the local economy, Criss said. “We now have facilities that qualify us to host state-level (school) tournaments and I can see the day when we could have a Babe Ruth (baseball) state tournament in Humboldt,” he said. The new complex makes Humboldt’s sports facilities complete. Several years ago a fieldhouse was constructed just south of the high school. The district also is eligible to host post-season competition with its two regulation gymnasiums.

was raging throughout the attic, shooting flames and black smoke high above the two-story structure. His father was out of town when the fire unfolded. “I guess it must have been some bad wiring,” Beaman said. “I think it started around a ceiling fan, but the fan wasn’t on at the time.

“My girlfriend (Tawenda Ramsey) and I was were watching TV when we smelled the smoke,” he said. They called 911, which led rural fire district trucks and Iola firefighters, as well as Allen County Volunteers, to respond. Firefighters extinguished flames coming through the ceiling — indoors and on a front porch — and then poured water on

the blaze, eventually knocking it down. Beaman told Allen County officers, who were on scene to provide security, that he and his friend always went outdoors to smoke, discounting the possibility hot ashes might have played a role in the fire. Beaman and Ramsey were not injured. Damage to the house was substantial.

he will be able to update the index organically as he receives information, not just once a year in a publication. The state of Kansas reimburses Carswell for his information, which gives the public access to his index. He has also sold individual copies of the index as well, in addition to the standing orders from Kansas libraries across the state. While he said he does not receive much compensation from the publication, it has provided some “supplemental in-

come” over the years. He downplayed the fact that he has created something truly unique in the state, but admitted that it is nice to hear positive feedback from people who use the index — especially at the various public library conferences he attends. “It’s just something useful that I do,” Carswell said. The Kansas periodical index can be accessed online at www. kslib.info, under the “Explore our Resources” tab.

Cubs earn return trip to state tourney Humboldt claims 3A regional title with routs By RICHARD LUKEN

richard@iolaregister.com

CHANUTE — Unlike their counterparts on the softball side a night earlier, Humboldt High’s baseball club wasn’t much interested in building any drama Wednesday. While the Lady Cubs had fans on the edge of their seats in a playoff victory Tuesday, the Cubs were methodically lethal — almost workmanlike — in a pair of dominating victories to punch their ticket to the state playoffs. Humboldt (14-2) secured a Class 3A regional championship — and its second straight trip to state — with wins of 12-1 over Jayhawk-Linn and 16-1 over Burlington in the title game. The Cubs followed a similar pattern in both contests by grabbing a first-inning lead, holding the lead with effective pitching and pouncing with aggressive base running to force opposing defenses into mistakes. “That’s the way we play, especially if we smell blood in the water,” Humboldt coach

Mike Miller said. “We want to make you make a play.” The Cubs put the game away with an eight-run third inning before ending the contest via the 15-run rule with a six-run fourth. Humboldt pounded out 12 hits and took advantage of five Burlington walks.

Leading the way was Jacob Carpenter, who started the scoring with an RBI single in the first inning. He ended the game 3-for-3 with a double, three RBIs and two runs.

Hunter Murrow went 2-for-3 with four runs scored. Corey Whitcomb had a pair of singles and two runs. Nate Whitcomb delivered a single and two runs. Caleb Vanatta

The Kansas City Royals’ Lorenzo Cain hits a three-run double against Los Angeles in the third inning at Angel Stadium of Anaheim on Wednesday.

Third inning propels Royals to 9-5 victory By JOE RESNICK Associated Press

ANAHEIM, Calif. (AP) — After getting swept in a three-game series by the New York Yankees at the end of their homestand, the Kansas City Royals turned things around somewhat against the underachieving Los Angeles Angels. Lorenzo Cain hit a threerun double and Billy Butler capped his most productive series of the season with a two-run single, leading the Royals to a 9-5 victory Wednesday night and help-

ing them climb within 1 1-2 games of AL Central-leading Detroit. They won two of three from the Halos to record their second winning series on the road. “It was huge, because we struggled with the Yankees. So coming in here and taking two from these guys was big for us,” Cain said. “Keeping those losing streaks down is definitely key throughout a long baseball season. So if we just continue to pitch the way we’ve been pitching and See ROYALS | Page B2

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Longtime Kansas City Royals broadcaster Fred White died Wednesday of complications from cancer. He was 76. The Royals were informed of White’s passing by his son, Joe. White died in hospice one day after Fred White the team announced his retirement after 40 years working for the organization. White was the sports anchor for Topeka’s WIBW-TV and broadcast Kansas State athletics before joining the Royals in 1973. He would work with Denny Matthews as their primary broadcasting through the 2008 season, when the team was well into its lengthy decline. Over those 25 years, though, White helped call six division championships, an American League pennant in 1980 and the Royals’ only World Series championship in 1985. White also broadcast basketball games for ESPN and other networks. Upon leaving the broadcast booth, he headed up the Royals Radio Network and supervised the Royals Alumni, assisting with clinics, appearances and the team’s fantasy camp.

smacked an RBI single. Caleb D’Armond had a single and run to with the defensive play of the game, a one-handed running catch along the warning track in the top of the fourth inning. Alex Murrow had a two-run triple with a run scored. Corey Whitcomb ended the game with a steal of home after Hunter Murrow intentionally got picked off first base to entice a rundown. Nate Whitcomb, meanwhile, was the beneficiary of his teammates’ offensive support. He shut down the Burlington offense on three hits with no walks. “We felt pretty good with Nate on the mound,” Miller said. “We knew if we could get him a couple of early runs we would be in good shape.” “I was able to get ahead in the count, which is something See HUMBOLDT | Page B2

Orb gets rail for Preakness

Register/Steven Schwartz

Marmaton Valley High’s Ryan Smith, right, and his Wildcat teammates were held in check Wednesday during the Class 2-1A regional playoffs, falling 13-1 to Arma-Northeast.

Wildcats’ run ends YATES CENTER — Marmaton Valley High’s baseball team saw its season come to a disappointing end Wednesday. The Wildcats committed nine errors, which led to 10 unearned runs for Arma’s Northeast High. The Vikings, conversely, limited Marmaton Valley to one hit, Chris Bowman’s single, in a 13-1 win. The loss, in the Class 2-1A regional semifinals, ends Marmaton Valley’s season at 6-5. “It looked like we

hadn’t played a game in a couple weeks,” Wildcat coach Derek Scharff said. “We committed several errors on routine plays we should have made.” Starting pitcher Jimmy Frye allowed six hits and a walk in five innings of work. He struck out three. “Jimmy pitched well, and they didn’t hit the ball very well,” Scharff said. “We just over-threw first a lot or fumbled the ball around.” The Wildcats were able to work Northeast’s

pitcher for four walks, but could never come up with the hits to drive in those runners, Scharff said. “We just played a bad game overall,” he said. “I wish we had more time to practice and got some more games in, because I think we had a good group of guys this year.” Northeast’s postseason run, meanwhile, ended one game later. Top seed St. Paul won the regional title game 17-2 to earn a state playoff berth.

BALTIMORE (AP) — For a while there, it looked as if the Preakness was shaping up to be a runaway victory for Kentucky Derby winner Orb. Then came the postposition draw. Suddenly things got very interesting. Orb’s pursuit of the Triple Crown received an unexpected jolt Wednesday when trainer Shug McGaughey’s horse drew the rail for Saturday’s race. McGaughey tried to brush off the development as a mere inconvenience, but he couldn’t entirely mask his disappointment over starting inside eight other horses in the smallest Preakness field since 2007. “Obviously, if I was going to pick it out, I wouldn’t have picked the 1,” McGaughey said. “But with only nine horses in there to run a mile and threesixteenths, with a rider like Joel (Rosario), he’s going to figure out what to do. He’ll have him in the right spot.”

That’s the plan. Yet, if Orb doesn’t get in front early, he risks becoming pinned on the rail or pushed to the back of the field. The inside post is even worse in the Derby, where this year there were 19 horses in the field. “If it had come out the 1 in the Derby, you’d almost have felt like you needed to go home,” McGaughey said. “But I don’t feel that way here.” Still, history suggests Orb’s advantage in this race has dwindled, even though he was made the evenmoney favorite in the morning line. Only twice since 1950 has a horse won from the No. 1 post — Bally Ache in 1960 and Tabasco Cat in 1994. So the rest of the field has a little bit more hope than it did before Orb got stuck on the rail. “Out of the nine numbers, the 1 is probably the one you want the least,” said Al Stall Jr., the trainer of De-

hit like we know how to hit, we’ll be fine. Now we’ve got the momentum swing going, and hopefully we’ll keep it going against Oakland.” Wade Davis (3-3) was charged with four runs and nine hits over 5 1-3 innings. Butler, who entered this series in a 4 for 35 rut, went

8 for 13 with a homer and nine RBIs — as many as he had in 103 at-bats over his previous 25 games. He was the top designated hitter in the league last season and won his first Silver Slugger Award with a .313 average. 29 homers and 107 RBIs. “Billy doesn’t stay down for long,” manager Ned Yost said. “He had a

great series, and once he heats up a little bit, he stays pretty consistent.” Barry Enright (0-2) gave up four runs, five hits and two walks in two-plus innings, leaving with the bases loaded and none out in the Royals’ seven-run third. “That’s their decision. Obviously it’s not up to me,” Enright said. “I felt

I could have worked out of things but they felt they were doing what’s best for the team.” The right-hander threw 47 pitches before he was replaced by Mark Lowe, who gave up Butler’s two-run single, followed by a walk to Eric Hosmer and Cain’s bases-clearing double into the left field corner.

I struggled with the last couple of games,” Whitcomb said. “We have a good defensive team, and coach wants us to pitch to contact. I was able to do that today.” IN THEIR opener against Jayhawk-Linn, the Cubs took the early advantage with a threerun first inning, then put the game away with nine in the fourth. Carpenter drove in two with a triple in the first to put Humboldt in front for good. Hunter Murrow’s tworun double was the big blow in the fourth frame. Caleb Vanatta and Grayson Pearish drilled backto-back triples later in the inning to cap the rally. Pearish got the start. He held Jayhawk-Linn in check, despite an errant pickoff attempt in the top of the third, which preceded a Ben Rowe double to pull the Jayhawks to within 3-1. But Pearish induced a ground-out to end the inning and effectively erase Jayhawk-Linn’s only rally of the game. He allowed four hits with one walk in five innings, while striking out three. “Grayson did a good job for us,” Miller said. “We shut him down early in the year because of arm problems, and he’s just now working his way back into shape. We still need to get his velocity up a bit, but he’s getting better. Today was a good sign.” Hunter Murrow went 2-for-3 with a double. Caleb Vanatta had a double and triple. Pearish had a triple and single. Carpenter singled twice. Nathan

“He was wild at first, so I definitely wanted to wait until he threw me a strike,” Cain said. “On a 1-1 count, I was looking for that fastball up and he threw it right where I could do damage with it. I put a good swing on it and got it down the line.” Cain scored on a passed ball by Chris Iannetta after advancing on an infield hit by Elliot Johnson, and Jarrod Dyson capped the rally with an RBI triple to rightcenter. It was the Royals’ most productive inning since Aug. 20, 2011, when they plated eight runs in the sixth. “We’re just trying to play good baseball and move in the right direction, and we feel like we did by winning the series,” Butler said. The Angels started chipping away with an RBI single by Albert Pujols in the bottom of the third and a run-scoring single by Iannetta in the fourth, trimming the deficit to 8-2. They loaded the bases later that inning, but Davis retired Erick Aybar on an inning-ending double-play grounder.

parting. Mylute, who will start from the No. 5 post as the second-favorite at 5-1, trailed Orb for much of the race in Kentucky. This race could develop quite differently with Orb inside.

Without the help of our citizens, the Food Bank would not be able to fulfill its purpose. The drive resulted in 4,703 pounds of food to be made available to those in need. Special thanks to the Postal Carriers who willingly and cheerfully undertook the gathering and delivering of the food, the Churches who provided people to load and unload at the Pantry, and to those volunteers who helped put it away. Your work is very much appreciated.

REGIONAL ti-

tles in baseball and softball are more feathers in the cap in what has been a remarkable sports year for Humboldt athletics. The school’s basketball team made it to the state championship game,

while the football team advanced to the second round of the postseason playoffs. The Cubs also are expected to take a strong contingent to next week’s state track meet in Wichita. The mood surrounding the plaque presentation after Wednesday’s games was joyous, but

calm. “We got a little taste of this last year,” Whitcomb said, referring to Humboldt’s third place finish at the state tournament in 2012. “I’m not sure if it’s sunk in yet,” Miller added, “or if the kids know they still have some business to take care of.”

‘Gatsby’ and Spielberg all the buzz at Cannes By JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment Writer

At the opening ceremony, DiCaprio, joined by his “Gatsby” co-star, Bollywood actor Amitabh Bachchan, declared the 66th Cannes officially begun. Over the next 12 days, dozens of the world’s most artistically ambitious films will premiere on Cannes’ global stage. But Wednesday was a day for blockbusters — both the big-budget “Gatsby” and Hollywood’s most accomplished director of spectacle: Steven Spielberg. Spielberg is serving as jury president at this year’s Cannes. His pres-

CANNES, France (AP) — The Cannes Film Festival got off to a blockbuster, if stormy start, as Baz Luhrmann’s “The Great Gatsby” opened on a soggy French Riviera. Amid heavy rain, dancing flappers flocked down the Cannes red carpet Wednesday night, bringing a touch of the Jazz Age to the Croisette. “Gatsby” stars Leonardo DiCaprio, Carey Mulligan and Tobey Maguire helped give the festival’s opening day a strong dose of star power.

ence here is a rarity (he’s had films at Cannes before, including “E.T.” and “Sugarland Express,” but never had a movie in competition), and he was received like a visiting head of state, a king of cinema. The “Lincoln” director received a standing ovation at the opening ceremony and was serenaded with a performance of “Miss Celie’s Blues” from his 1985 film, “The Color Purple.” He heads the jury that will decide the prestigious Palme d’Or, given to one of the 20 competing films, with entries ranging from the Coen brothers (“Llewyn Davis”), Alexander Payne (“Nebraska”) and Steven Soderbergh (“Behind the Candelabra”). This year’s jury is an intimidating, starry bunch, including Nicole Kidman, Ang Lee and Christoph Waltz. “Everyone sits in judgment of us,” Spielberg said. “So it’s our turn.” Luhrmann’s 3-D adaption of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, is this year’s festival opener, a choice that surprised many since the film opened last week in North America. Cannes typically takes

precedence over release schedules, but “Gatsby” sails to the Croisette after a robust weekend haul of $51.1 million. After Luhrmann noted in a news conference that the film had pushed Fitzgerald’s novel to the top of the bestseller list (selling more copies in a week than in the author’s lifetime), DiCaprio added with a

grin: “And a little film adaptation is doing quite well at the box office.” But while “Gatsby” is getting a victory lap on the Cannes’ red carpet, it comes to the festival with the sting of mixed reviews. Many film crit-

ics have taken issue with the movie’s stylistic flourishes. “I knew that would come,” said Luhrmann, noting Fitzgerald’s 1925 novel was also initially received poorly. “I just care that people are going out and seeing it. I really am so moved by that.” “Gatsby” plays out of competition at the festival, but Spielberg should have his hands full with a slate lacking any obvious favorite. Internationally-respected filmmakers like Roman Polanski (“Venus in Fur”), Asghar Farhadi (“The Past) and Jim Jarmusch (“Only Lovers Left Alive”) are to premiere their films in competition. Every year, the Cannes jury president is psychoanalyzed to help predict the Palme d’Or winner. This year is no different, with onlookers guessing that Spielberg will either gravitate toward the kind of warm-hearted films he’s best known for, or seek to deliberately contradict that assumption with a more audacious choice.

Midwest could see storms NORMAN, Okla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Forecasters say portions of the central United States could see severe weather this weekend and Monday. The Storm Prediction Center at Norman, Okla., said Wednesday a bout of â&#x20AC;&#x153;fairly substantialâ&#x20AC;? bad weather is possible in Kansas, Nebraska and the Dakotas on Saturday, from Oklahoma to Iowa on Sunday and from Oklahoma to Illinois on Monday. Storms could become steadily worse through the period â&#x20AC;&#x201D; starting with hail and high winds Saturday and evolving into a system with tornadoes possible by Monday in Arkansas, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri and Oklahoma. The bad weather could extend into Tuesday but forecasters said a longer term storm prediction was not possible yet.

Guard braces for layoffs TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Kansas National Guard says it will furlough about 1,100 members for up to 11 days because of federal funding shortfalls. Maj. Gen. Lee Tafanelli, who heads the Kansas National Guard, said the furloughs will affect members whose jobs are federally funded, such as those in administration and logistical support. No furloughs are planned for active-duty and reserve members. The furloughs were ordered by the Defense Department. Tafanelli says theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll start July 8 at the earliest and run through Sept. 30. Those affected will be out of work one day a week, losing 20 percent of their pay. There are approximately 7,500 members of the Kansas Air and Army National Guard.

Wade leads way as Heat prevail MIAMI (AP) — The tape around Dwyane Wade’s right knee was soaked with sweat and beginning to loosen, so he headed to the locker room to get the joint re-wrapped during the fourth quarter. Must have been one amazing tape job. Wade was brilliant down the stretch — and the Miami Heat are heading back to the Eastern Conference finals as a result. LeBron James scored 23 points, Wade added 18 and the Heat clawed back from an 11-point second-half deficit to beat the Chicago Bulls 94-91 on Wednesday

night and close out their second-round series in five games. “We gave it everything we had,” James said. “I have no energy left.” The Heat outscored Chicago 25-14 in the fourth quarter to escape and advance. “I knew it was going to be a tough fourth quarter,” Wade said. “I just wanted to make sure I was good.” Wade made all three of his shots in the fourth, scored six points — his most in a final period since March 27, when Miami’s 27-game winning streak ended at Chicago — and helped ice the victory with a

dazzling 45-second blitz in the final moments. In that span alone, Wade had a blocked shot, defensive rebound, offensive rebound and putback dunk to help cap a wild night of wild comebacks. The Heat blew an early 18-point lead, then engineered a late rally to finish off the depleted Bulls. “Dwyane is uncanny,” Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. “When the competition is at its highest, and its fiercest, he finds a way.” The Bulls still had two chances on their last possession to force overtime. But Nate Robinson and Jimmy Butler missed 3-pointers, time expired, and Miami

moved on to face Indiana or New York next week. Carlos Boozer finished with 26 points and 14 rebounds for the Bulls, who were without Derrick Rose for the 99th straight game, as well as Kirk Hinrich (calf) and Luol Deng (illness). Robinson scored 21 points, Butler had 19, and Richard Hamilton 15 for the Bulls, who dropped the final four games of the series. “Obviously we’re disappointed in losing the series,” Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. “But I was never disappointed in our team. I thought our team fought hard all year long. There was no quit in them.”

Memphis caps series win over Thunder OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — The Memphis Grizzlies advanced to the Western Conference finals for the first time in franchise history by beating the Oklahoma City Thunder 88-84 on Wednesday night. Zach Randolph had 28 points and 14 rebounds, Mike Conley added 13 points and 11 assists for Memphis, the fifth seed.

Kevin Durant missed a 16-foot jumper from the left wing to tie it with 6 seconds left, finishing off a miserable shooting night for the three-time NBA scoring champion. Durant ended up with 21 points on 5-for21 shooting, the thirdworst performance of his playoff career. The Thunder, who made it to the NBA Finals last season, were eliminated in five games. The top seed in the West went 2-6 after All-Star guard Russell Westbrook went out

with a knee injury that required surgery. Serge Ibaka had 17 points and eight rebounds before fouling out with 1:26 to play during a desperation comeback try for the Thunder. Oklahoma City trailed by 12 with three minutes left before going on a 16-6 rally, with Reggie Jackson’s 3-pointer cutting the deficit to 86-84 with 14.3 seconds remaining. Randolph missed both free throws with 11.3 seconds on the clock to give the Thunder one

last chance to save their season. Durant got the ball beyond the 3-point line on the left wing and navigated around Tony Allen before missing the jumper. Allen made two free throws to close it out. After letting a 14-point lead get trimmed to two, the Grizzlies regained control with a 12-2 run to start the fourth quarter. It featured seven points from Randolph — five from the foul line — to go up 76-64 with 6:03 remaining.

DAILY CRYPTOQUOTES - Here’s how to work it:

Sudoku is like a crossword puzzle, but uses numbers instead of words. The puzzle is a box of 81 squares, subdivided into 3x3 cubes of 9 squares each. Some squares are filled in with numbers. The rest should be filled in by the puzzler. Fill in the blank squares allowing the numbers 1-9 to appear only once in every row, once in every column and once in every 3x3 box. One-star puzzles are for beginners, and the difficulty gradually increases through the week to a very challenging fivestar puzzle.
